NARS Kalahari has become quite a favorite of mine recently and I wanted to kick it up a notch with a dramatic smoky eye.  I’ve also been working on eyeliner technique and was happy to put both together in one look.  I kept the eye heavy and smokey but didn’t want to go completely neutral on the rest of my face.  I instead chose items with peach tones for both the lips and cheek.  The overall is look is very dramatic and not something I’ll wear on a daily basis.  Since its creation, however, I’ve toned it down to a daytime bronze smoky eye and peach cheeks and lips and it looks lovely!  Is spring here yet?  I want more peach!

It was fun testing the limits of my typical makeup application over the last few days.  I’m working on a couple personal challenges for spring with colors I don’t normally wear and I look forward to sharing tips on making those seasonal trends work!  What are some ways you challenge your beauty routine?
